The Marram Grass

The Marram Grass

This delightful place has a great pair of charismatic owners who are true grass root foodies at heart. The two young guys have made the Marram grass a show case since their taking over of their fathers caravan park cafe which was a humble pit stop for cyclists and tourists on the Anglesey round. Since their taking over and modernizing it – it truly has had a meteoric rise on the Anglesey and North Wales grape-vine. I have met some interesting passionate people on my travels across the globe, and suffice to say these two brothers stand head and shoulders above the rest. Their passion for this restaurant is contagious! They have been working diligently for what must be almost a decade now on both their venue and their menus. Both have had the bar raised continuously.

The restaurant is situated in Newborough not too far from the very famous and well exposed Newborough beach and Llandwyn Island.

The interior is snug with a modest number of covers, but that adds to its overall appeal. The Bar top is one beautiful feature in itself, made from a solid cut of timber spanning the full length. The decor is rustic with a splash of color and is executed well. Liam I believe was a master of interior design in his previous line of work and it shows to his authentic detail there.

The two have a serious passion for food and are making every attempt to go all seasonal and local sourced with their food sourcing. They have plans to cultivate areas for growing for their kitchen garden, expansion of a cookery school and further expand their kitchen premises, all the while raising the bar on their culinary par excellence.

With their plans to scale up and produce a cookery school, new kitchens and have their own kitchen garden for 12 month seasonal local vegetables, the two brothers are clearly on a further upward trajectory in the culinary world. With very good reviews from the Guardian, FT, Telegraph and The daily mail along with making it into the good food guide, Foods awards wales winner cafe / bistro of the yearawards from caterer magazine they are clearly making a stir. Keep up the amazing work boys!.
